Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Get Out (2017)

Jim: I used to dabble myself. Wilderness mostly. I submitted to Nat Geo 14 times before realizing I didn't have the eye. I began dealing. Then, of course, my vision went to shit.
Chris: Damn.
Jim: I know. Life can be a sick joke. One day you're developing prints in the dark room and the next day you wake up - in the dark. Genetic disease.
Chris: Shit ain't fair, man.
 Jim: Oh, you got that right! Shit ain't fair.

I need to re-watch Get Out. It's been a hot minute; not since seeing Us earlier this year at least. Also with me not liking Queen & Slim it'd be a nice reminder how great Daniel Kaluuya can be. On that note -- a happy 31st birthday to him today! Up next for him is a bio-pic of famous Black Panther Fred Hampton reuniting him with his Get Out co-star Lakeith Stanfield, and then he's doing voice-work in some sort of  "darker fantasy" slash "radical retelling" of A Christmas Carol alongside Andy Serkis and Carey Mulligan. Mkay.
